Golf Club

"All of us at the Indian Wells Golf Club are very pleased with our SonicSolutions Algae Control devices. Although we were initially skeptical that the devices would work, we have not needed to use any chemicals for algae control in our ponds—even through the hottest months of the summer! Today, we have 21 SonicSolutions units, including 12 solar powered models, controlling algae and helping preserve the beauty of our golf course in an environmentally responsible way."

Rich Carter, General Manager, Indian Wells Golf Club, Indian Wells, CA


Country Club

Sonic Pond Management Solutions"We installed one of your SonicSolutions ultrasonic algae eliminators in our largest pond ... we discontinued the use of chemical algaecides in that pond. Within a week or two after start up, the algae in the pond died. Since then, the pond has remained algae free. During this same period, we continued to treat our other ponds with the usual algaecides. It's fantastic that your SonicSolutions unit has kept the pond on the 13th the cleanest of our six ponds and has done so without the use of any chemical algaecides. I would be happy to provide a reference to potential SonicSolutions customers. I am very pleased that the SonicSolutions unit offers us a way to kill algae, and prevent its return, without chemicals."

Michael J. Rohwer, Golf Course Superintendent, Shadowridge Country Club, Vista, CA

Sonic Pond Management Solutions

"SonicSolutions is a major component of our pond management strategy. For the past several years our irrigation pond has stayed algae free. SonicSolutions has helped us obtain certification status with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program."

Matthew Ceplo, Golf Course Superintendent, Rockland Country Club, Rockland, NY


Golf Course

"We are extremely happy with our SonicSolutions devices. Our algae problem was quite extreme and the results were both immediate and long lasting."

Country Club

Sonic Pond Management Solutions

"SonicSolutions was not only the most environmentally friendly way to rid our pond of algae, it was also the most cost-effective, too."

Phillip J. White, Crofton Country Club, Crofton, MD


Drinking Water

"A SonicSolutions system was installed at one of our surface water treatment plants producing drinking water. The device controlled algae growth on the walls of the sedimentation basin after discontinuing the pre-chlorine step to reduce the formation of disinfection by products during water treatment. It was a successful treatment change."

Christian J. Volk, Virginia-American Water, Hopewell, VA


Winery

"SonicSolutions is a great way to control pond algae without introducing chemicals into the vineyard environment."

Chris Benziger, Benziger Family Winery, Glen Ellen, CA


Botanical Garden

"We tested and subsequently purchased two SonicSolutions units for use in our irrigation pond and pump house tank. The result has been a great reduction in algae and the need for application of algaecides. The SonicSolutions units have performed well in controlling algae and have proved cost effective compared to the labor and chemical costs of our previous algae control efforts. Thank you SonicSolutions!"

Marlin Dise, Horticultural Maintenance Supervisor and James Smith, Horticultural Supervisor, Winterthur, An American Country Estate, Winterthur, DE


Pond

"I currently own a SonicSolutions Model SS-400, which has been in use since 2004. I am so pleased with your product that I feel compelled to share my positive experiences with you. This personal testimony is reflective not only of the quality of your product but also of the sincere satisfaction of this customer.

sonic-pond-management-pond.jpgIn 1987 I created a half-acre pond on my property and stocked it with blue gill, bass, and Koi. The Koi were unable to adequately control an algae problem and so I resorted to using algaecides along with pond dyes. The cost of the chemicals and dyes ran about $500 per year. However, I love my pond fish and I was not comfortable with the potential environmental impact of the algaecides that I was using. In 2004, though a tad skeptical, I did decide to try the Model SS-400 and to my delight the algae problem was solved and my SonicSolutions unit has been in operation ever since.

My fish have their spring babies and the heron comes and dines ... keeping the fish population under control, while the marvelous SonicSolutions does its part for the algae. My pond is so beautiful that people driving by stop to take pictures of it and city folks who visit, and are loathe to swim in a country pond, jump right in.

My fish and I thank you for this most unique invention and wish you many years of future 'chemical to sonic' converts."

Ellie Lowell, Willington, CT


Trout Pond

sonic-pond-management-trout-pond.jpg

"Our tree farm has a couple medium-sized trout ponds, which we stock annually with a couple hundred rainbow and golden trout. Both ponds are subject to significant algal blooms in the summer, which if left untreated, threatens the health of the trout. We were always a bit embarrassed by the 'tidy bowl' tint to our pond ...

We installed the SonicSolutions algae control device in the Spring and within weeks, the pond was more clear than we had ever seen it before—we could literally count the golden trout at the bottom of the 14-foot pond. Unfortunately, we weren't the only ones that could now see those tasty trout—our pond is now home to some well-fed blue heron and bald eagles!

We are a testament to, not only the success of the SonicSolutions ultrasonic device, but the passion and dedication of the SonicSolutions staff, who continue to provide advice and assistance to help us optimize our system. We strongly recommend SonicSolutions."

Jude Grounds Wright, Ground Tree Farm, Rainier, OR


Lake

Sonic Pond Management Solutions

"I am writing you to express our gratitude for your guidance and assistance with eliminating our neighborhood's lake algae problem.

As you are aware, our lake is a detention pool for the "Blue Line" stream that passes 1,200 or so homes upstream and eventually flows into the Kentucky River. The nutrients that wash into our lake following large rains create an outright algae explosion.

Your recommendation of SonicSolution devices along with a bottom aeration diffused system has eliminated our algae problem.

Previous to the success of SonicSolution devices our only option (an unacceptable one) for arresting algae would have been introducing chemicals to the lake.

Thank you for assisting Woodfield Neighborhood in our efforts to manage our park lake in an effective, ecologically friendly manner."

Don Oschwald, Director/Past President, Woodfield Homes Association, Lexington, KY 


Pond

"Well, we were all skeptical when we installed the unit into this Destine pond on April 1. The pictures show the Lyngbia matted densely at one end and a perimeter of the stuff around the edges. We checked the results of the device on April 15, and to our surprise this pond was perfectly clean. Sonic Pond Management SolutionsThe bottom of the pond that was covered with mats peeling off the bottom was now a nice sand bottom; the large masses of Lyngbia floating on the surface were gone.

The pictures show the transformation quite clearly. We followed up with another check on May 5, which would be 30 days the device was in the pond and the pond was the same from April 15, no algae.

The results from the SonicSolutions device were truly very good. We have tried many new products over the years but this device really seems to be a useful tool in the war on algae. The device is very easy to install, only needs a 120V outlet, and is surprisingly small, so is not highly visible to the average passerby."

Matthew T. Scott, Regional Manager, The Lake Doctors, Inc., St. Petersburg, FL


Marina

"On the 25th of July we installed a SonicSolutions Model SS-500 in our dock area. After just over two weeks the results in the immediate area were extraordinary with areas further out taking somewhat longer but eventually achieving the same result. The SonicSolutions system eliminated the algae while causing no harm to any of the fish and other wildlife in the area tested and our club was very pleased with the results."

Michael Kellstrand Member, Willow Bank Yacht Club, Cazenovia, NY


Waste Water Stabilization Pond

"The City of Comer started using a SonicSolutions ultrasonic device to remove algae from the city's wastewater discharge. Comer has a one acre stabilization pond and algae in the effluent was determined to be a significant contribution to our seasonal high effluent BOD5 results ... what we have seen thus far indicates that we have significantly improved our wastewater discharge lab results. Before the device a good BOD5 result was in the 20s (our permit limit is 30). Now it's not uncommon for us to get single digit results."

Stephen H. Sorrells, City Clerk, Comer, GA


Water Retention Pond

Sonic Pond Management Solutions

"Easton has been using a couple of SonicSolutions' SS-500s in our raw water retention ponds for three years. We previously spent $4,000/year on copper sulphate. We have spent ZERO in the last three years and we have noticed an improvement in raw water turbidity. Very little maintenance has been required, as well.

One time the SS-500 came loose from its support and was pointing into the mud and we got an algae bloom!"

Jim Meyer, Town Foreman,Easton, Saskatchewan, Canada


Waste Water Treatment Plant

"Crikey! SonicSolutions not only cleaned up the blue green algae, it also cleaned up the shells of the turtles in the pond!"

Col Stanger, Supervisor of Wastewater Treatment, Calliope Shire, Central Queensland, Australia
